    PC 5-6 Report Cobia / Banana River

    Went out today looking for some tripletails and shaking down my brothers boat. To my delight, what I thought was a tripletail turned out to be a cobia. Not a giant fish but after such a lousy cobia season it made my day. Had fun catching him on light tackle. Was using a 1/4 oz pink jig head with a large live shrimp w/tail fin removed (hooked backwards).

    Also, we were out in the Banana river Sunday afternoon and the trout bite was great. I think we caught about 10 trout (upper slot) and some huge ladyfish. Basically fished the biggest mullet schools we could find. Caught them on live mullet and 1/8 oz jig heads w/soft baits. Released everything.
    Love sunsets on the river.
